    Syousin Chiku Migaki Gyuto by Yu Kurosaki, holiday special edition

    Hi KKF,

    I have just listed a Migaki (polished) version of the Syousin Chiku Gyuto. This is a holiday special edition with a super cool K&S custom handle. I also ease the spine for a more comfortable grip. 240mm ONLY!

    I am sure you all heard enough about how great Kurosaki-san's work is, not to mention they come with great value. This special Migaki version is just making everything that TINY bit better

    Really nice James! Will you be making a 210?
    One thing you can give and still keep...is your word.

    Sexy I own two of his knives. His work is outstanding. Alas it's Christmas time and I spent the last 3 days at the west Edmonton mall. If theres one left in January I'd be down. I suppose I can hope seriously love the custom work you do. Mom got her ginsan and loved it.eons above the kramer essential in terms of apperance and performance.

    I saw this posted in Jame's IG last night and nearly soiled myself.

    I also think this should spearhead a new thread called "Kurosaki Sightings". This knife popped up the same time a similar thread for Shig was updated, and I thought wow, this is a knife that people should be talking about and chasing. In my mind and experience, Kurosaki outperforms Shig in every way. What my Kurosaki AS gyuto lacks in weight (a bit lighter than a Shig) and hype, it more than makes up for in performance.

    Aesthetically I tend to favor a kurouchi finish. Aside from a slight difference in weight, and the different handle, what would be the main differences (performance-related) between this one and the kurouchi version? Hardness seems about the same.

    Crap, I just saw the Shig thread after posting the above commit. And of course it's too late to edit.
    I was definitely not bashing on Shig. Rather I was comparing one great (but somewhat un-known) knife to another great (and well known) knife. And yes, I'd pit my Kurosaki up against a Shig any day.

    The performance should really be the same as the kurochi, just offering different options.

    The balance point should is like so:

    Probably not on this occasion, I don't have enough stock this time around, and I won't be able to continuously supply this type of handle at this price.
